National

President Trump and the First Lady are getting ready to leave for Japan.

On Thursday, the first couple made an unannounced visit to Arlington National Cemetery and paid their respects to fallen American Troops.

This trip to Tokyo, Japan comes as Japanese media reports Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is considering a visit to Iran next month to work as a middle man between Tehran and Washington. 

It’s believed that Abe will ask for Mr. Trump’s consent during his visit.

If he goes, Abe will be the first Japanese leader to visit Iran since 1978.
